I was born in North Canton, Ohio and went to THE Ohio State University earning a degree in Atmospheric Science. I’m a Buckeye to the core! I started at WLIO in March of 2007 and hold the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) Seal. The CBM Seal is the highest professional designation awarded by the American Meteorological Society (AMS), as it involves continuing education, public outreach, and a comprehensive written exam. I also make it a high priority to regularly get out into elementary schools around West Central Ohio to speak with children about the weather! Besides my fascination with the weather I love to spend time with my wife Megan. I am also a BIG sports junkie that loves to take advantage of being very active. I love to workout, run, play basketball and especially during the Winter hit the slopes and ski!
